In this all-black cast musical romance, Barbara (Sheila Guyse) must compete with a rich woman (Tondaleyo) for the man she loves. The man, singer and band leader Bob Jordan (Billy Daniel), tries to pursue his career, but soon comes to realize that there is more to life than being in high society.

"Race" Film Fable Nicely Done
A typical and simplistic plot - a musician with loving, beautiful and talented girl becomes popular and gets led astray by a foxy, worldly beauty on her way further up. All the actors are good and those who are musicians are alsp great musically. This includes Billy Daniels and the beautiful Sheila Guyse as well as Ruble Blake and Deek Watson, leader of the Brown Dots vocal quartet. A very entertaining 79 minutea.

An entertaining all-black musical with a standard plot. Nominally costars Billy Daniel and gorgeous Sheila Guyse. Better acting and production values, and the print is in a better state of preservation, than most of the all-black films at IA. Good musical performances include two up-tempo swing instrumentals. An odd note is the appearance of Freddie Bartholomew to deliver standup jokes, sitting down.
Acceptable video and audio. There are a few missing frames.
